Explain in terms of momentum conservation how the recoil of a gun arises
Visit Newton's laws:

a) Understand the definition of a force in terms of momentum.

b) Action and reaction

c) that the forces involved with two colliding objects are equal and opposite

d) that the forces act for a given amount of time giving rise to the concept of an impulse

e) that the impulse experienced is equal to the change in momentum

f) hence conservation of momentum: that which is lost by one object, is gained by the other.
